M262b Coarse wove Imperial - Hand Made watermark

These moulds are notable for their very coarse mesh. The size 572 x 800mm (Large Imperial) and watermarks suggest they may have been used to make Green's Pasteless Board for which heavy weight (Imperial 200lb & 300lb, 400 & 600 g/m2) the coarse mesh would help drainage. However the deckle is more suitable for Imperial 140lb. Made by E Amies & Son 7/1947.
